Upper Hutt has always been home-base for a father-and-son building team which son Bill Peryer has since established as Peryer Construction WGTN Limited – a main contractor that has been servicing the Wellington region for over 30 years.
With its long term staff of 26 including qualified carpenters, contract managers, management and administrative personnel, Peryer Construction has built a reputation for not only building physical structures but also strong relationships with its clients, subcontractors, staff and community.
Owners Bill and Jan Peryer are certain that being a medium-sized business, rather than a large scale company, provides their clients with a genuine advantage. “It is our quality of workmanship, extensive experience and hands-on coordination of building projects that has stood us in good stead, especially through the recession”.
“We both grew up in Upper Hutt. It’s been the perfect place to raise our family – it has a strong community spirit and a huge range of sporting opportunities. It’s a haven for tramping, walking and golf. Cycling and mountain biking are really popular here too and we are proud that people travel from all over the world to Upper Hutt to compete in the Karapoti Classic. Nature is on our doorstep – there are so many things to do here. And we’re only half an hour’s drive from Wellington’s CBD”.
As a main contractor, Jan and Bill have regular contact with the Upper Hutt City Council for building consents and compliance. “The council is very positive, friendly and obliging, which makes our job much easier”.
Bill explains that “our clients respect the quality of our work, our ability to communicate professionally and honestly, and to meet the timing and budget requirements of projects. Our proven performance means clients return to us again and again. We take that as a sign that we’re doing something right!”
Peryer Construction’s comprehensive portfolio extends from new builds to major alterations of commercial and industrial facilities, educational, government fit-outs, multi-accommodation and aged care facilities across the Wellington region including the Kapiti Coast. Its projects range from small budgets up to $4 million, although some extend beyond that.
Local projects recently completed include: Akatarawa Cemetery Crematorium Development and the extensive refurbishment of the Maidstone Park Pavilion Building. “We are also very proud to have undertaken the Upper Hutt Library Alterations and Extensions for our city”.
The company has also completed the extensive Aroha Care Centre Hospital Development, St Peters & Paul School C Block Development, Our Lady of Rosary School A Block, Whitby Shopping Village Development and numerous education facilities including Lyall Bay School, Stages 1- 3. These projects ranged from $1 million to $4 million.
Since Wellington experienced a series of earthquakes in mid-2013, Peryer Construction has been involved in numerous seismic structural strengthening projects including our local Our Lady of Grace Church and St Joseph’s Villa’s, Chapel Reroofing Project which is due to start in 2015.
Jan is proud to of their relationships with our clients. “When clients or sub-contractors ring the office there is a good chance they’ll speak to one of us. This may seem insignificant but it is important because as owners, the buck stops with us”.
